  • Patent number: 11264686
    Abstract: This disclosure describes a dielectric filter and a communications device. In one example, the dielectric filter includes at least two dielectric resonators, a first through-hole is disposed between at least one pair of adjacent dielectric resonators, and the first through-hole is configured to cut a magnetic field between the at least one pair of adjacent dielectric resonators. In some implementations, a magnetic field distribution in the dielectric filter may be cut via the first through-hole, so that a magnetic field distribution area is reduced, and a high-order harmonic wave frequency can be increased, thereby improving a remote suppression capability and meeting the specification requirements.

  • Patent number: 11239546
    Abstract: Multiple feed, front-shielded, coplanar waveguide, direct-fed, cavity-backed slot antennas are described. Various implementations form an antenna unit capable of millimeter waveform and/or microwave waveform transmissions. An antenna comprises a conductive plate that includes an aperture. The aperture has a shape that extends along an axis that bisects the aperture into first and second bisected portions, the first bisected portion having a first geometry type, and the second portion having a second geometry type that is a bilateral symmetry shape type of the first geometry type. In implementations, the aperture is configured to radiate waveforms within a frequency range from about between 600 Megahertz (MHz) to 72 Gigahertz (GHz) by applying multiple signal feeds to the conductive plate.
